I'm not in college anymore, why am I doing this???


This is going to sound so lame, but I'm writing a paper on the common eider. That's right the duck I love to hunt more than anything now has brought me to the wonderful world of research and writing. You may ask why and to be honest, I'm not really sure. All I know is that since I've finished my masters degree, I'm still looking for reasons to keep improving henceforth the notion of life-long learning. For an update of this paper that will be submitted soon, I have focused on some of the aspects of the common eider that are new to me and worth discussing. Here's one did you know??????? Within the the group common eider, somateria mollissima, there exists at least 4 sub-species, potentially 5 in North America... That's right, there are up to five different versions of the same common eider and it gets more complex as you include Europe...

In addition, there will be another Rabid Outdoorsman/Downeast Duck Hunter face off slated for the 7th and 8th of November. However, this one will be in Downeast Maine and will take us down to duck camp... This should be quite a story for our hunting club, Duckpower, will be in full attendance for the two day hunt...

Stay tuned!!!

TBD,
Cold air in on the way, when Al Gore gets to be the climate change czar under Obama, things will cool down some. The paper is done and ready for critique. And the two day hunt has become a one day hunt with an overnight, this change is on me and work...
